Orange cupcake ~ 香橙纸杯蛋糕



I spotted these cute Bageforme baking cups on my recent holiday and bought them without much hesitation.  Bageforme is Danish for bakeware.  A box of 12 costs two Euro.  Coming back to the cupcakes.  These orange zesty cupcakes are  soft and moist and to me they taste a bit like sponge cake.   I dressed some up with  butter icing and if you are not a fan of buttery icing, they are also delicious, even eaten on its own.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
